    The Blair School Board has accepted the resignation of fifth-grade teacher Jim Koontz, effective immediately, in the wake of an "inappropriate relationship" with a 17-year-old high school student. Koontz was suspended with pay on Nov. 29, when school district administrators confirmed the relationship. They subsequently recommended to the school board that Koontz's teaching contract be terminated.

    I don't know. But some people are stupid they are blaming her -- a girl she is not an adult. Rumor has it they were busted at his house by his wife.

    Yes, but not the best that high school could offer...



    she is the hottest of her sisters, at the very least

    :hit:


    The teacher made a completely stupid move and will now pay for his lack of judgment (ethical or otherwise) and restraint

    You are clearly an asshole.
    Why does it matter that she's hot....she was manipulated by an older man who knew better. It had a big effect on her and here you are judging not only her looks...but the looks of her siblings.
    Wow. Why don't you grow up and get the point.
    ASSHOLE

    Mike is right. It wouldn't normally be a crime if the guy was not in a position of power or influence. Seventeen is old enough to know what you are doing. I don't feel sorry for either one of them. The only true victims in these cases are the spouse and children of the perpetrator.

    here's what you need to realize.
    you didn't get told most of what happened...obviously. the schools didn't want all of the information leaked and the actually story of what happened got skewed the longer the news was reporting on it. i am her sister...i know the whole story...i also know exactly what information has been fabricated...
    bottom line...
    i was just upset that the actual substance of this thread got lost by some asshole questioning if my sister was hot...like that even matters
    it destroyed her senior year...
    she became more of a rumor than a person
    yes she should have known better, but you have no idea what kind of trouble she was going through at that time...she was extremely vulnerable and felt alone. he figured that out and exploited it.

    Sorry to upset you. Every story gets blown out of context before it gets to the public. I was speaking in generalities. Nothing personal and I hope your family is okay.:tape:

    Look, I didn't mean to upset you. But, we all make mistakes, and she has now made one of hers. All she can do is learn, and move on from here.

    "YOU DON'T KNOW THE WHOLE STORY!" Nobody does, everybody plays off what they read in the media.

    Wow, a 2 and a half year old thread gets resurrected.

    Yeah , I remember them always making googly eyes at each other in class , but I was in fifth grade and never thought anything of it. But I remember the day our principle came in and talked to my class about Mr.Koontz not coming back , and I was actually kinda upset because he was one of the coolest teachers I have ever had. So just because of what happened doesn't make him a bad guy , yes what he did was wrong but everyone makes mistakes, so when I saw this post I made an account to let people know that just because what he did he's not a bad guy,and he was a really good teacher!
